QA25: My 4 year old sleeps in our bed. Is this wrong?

In the long run, it’s good for kids to learn to comfort themselves to sleep and to learn to sleep on their own. However, sleeping with your children is really only a problem if it’s a problem for you. There are many cultures in the world where co-sleeping is the norm. If you decided tha it’s right for your family, just recognize that you are creating a habit that may be hard to break down the line. If you think it will be a problem when your child is older, then it’s better to address it now.
